Google has officially launched the Fuchsia OS

Google's long-awaited Fuchsia OS launched its first consumer device, the first generation Nest Hub.

The update was released today by owners of the first generation Nest Hub, which first released in 2018.

This update doesn't change any of the Nest Hub's functionality, but the smart display runs on Fuchsia instead of the Linux-based operating system we used previously.

Google's work on Fuchsia OS made its debut in 2016. It is worth noting that the open source operating system is not based on the Linux kernel, but rather uses a small kernel called Zircon.

Google Chief Technology Officer Peter Hosk said in a tweet about the Fuchsia OS project: They are not releasing new operating systems every day, but today we announced Fuchsia OS.

Although the operating system for the Nest Hub was released today (Google Home Hub was originally released before the name change), the entire deployment process will take several months.

The operating system first contacts the user in the preview program and then starts it up in bulk.

The report indicated that Google tested the operating system through the Nest Hub. More evidence of this release was released earlier this month as the Bluetooth SIG listing revealed that the Nest Hub was running Fuchsia 1.0.

While the Nest Hub replaces the current OS with Fuchsia OS, the experience can be nearly the same and most users are unlikely to notice this change.

Google seems to be using this product with caution and it may take several months because changing the OS is not a simple update.

Today's release marks Google's biggest public move towards Fuchsia OS, which is an operating system that ordinary people can use.

Research giant Fuchsia describes OS as a secure, scalable, comprehensive, and realistic production operating system.

The operating system can run on laptops and smartphones (the company tested it with the Pixelbook in 2018 and recently developed a solution for running Android and Linux apps), but Fuchsia OS is not a single OS alternative to Android or Chrome.

Hiroshi Lockheimer, president of Android and Chrome OS, said in 2019: Fuchsia OS aims to promote the latest technology for the operating system, and what we learned from Fuchsia OS can be integrated into other products.
